Isn't the idea that you can use c^.^- to get the dot below the
line and c^_ to get the dot above the line?

What lilypond calls "portato" marks (a staccato dot and tenuto line
combined) appear to be inverted - all scores I have have the staccato dot
closest to the notehead, and the tenuto line furthest.

Added as portato-direction.

Portato doesn't exist in the music I use to play, so I don't know myself which direction that is correct. Do you have concrete examples of well-engraved scores that do it the other way around? Or can anyone else confirm how it should look?

(Most sources I can find prefer tenuto lines, or slurred notes with staccato dots)

Furhermore, slurs do not properly avoid them.

Added as c-slur-portato.
